Hedgehogs are in the Insectivore family. In the wild, a hedgehog's diet consists
primarily of insects.  In captivity, our pet hedgehogs need a ration that is a little more
convenient to feed than live bugs!  The two most important components of a proper food for
hedgehogs are high protein and a low fat content.  Consequently, dry cat foods, with poultry as
their main ingredient, have constituted the main staple of many hedgehog diets for years.


For over a decade, Hedgehogs by Vickie, has relied upon several brands of dry formula
cat food as the main diet for our hedgehogs.  During this time, several companies have
endeavored to develop a dry food designed specifically for hedgehogs.  Some have come
and gone.  Some have been marketed regardless of the fact that they contained questionable
nutritional value.  Others have had great nutritional content and ingredients, however they
just didn't taste good to the hedgies!  Either way, commercial hedgehog foods have
been somewhat of a disappointment.

That is until we discovered Spike's Delite Hedgehog Foods!
Spike's Delight is manufactured by Pet-Pro Products of
Middletown, Missouri.  Pet-Pro is a manufacturer of quality
specialty animal diets.  Their product line caters to all sorts of
exotic critters from Sugar Gliders to Wallabies.  At the core of
their plethora of patented formulas is
Spike's Delight, the
highest and most palatable line of hedgehog foods available!

Initially, we discovered that although Spike's Delite had a
great reputation from breeders to pet owners alike, it was

hedgehog food

difficult to obtain.  A high end, specialty product designed to meet the needs of a niche market,
Spike's Delite isn't an item that can be easily found at the local Super Pet Store chain.  So we
set out to figure out a way to obtain this excellent product for both our animals and those
of our customers.

Spike's Delite Hedgehog Foods Provide Top-Quality Nutrition
With The Following Features:

* PATENTED COOKING PROCESS

Spike's Delite IS MANUFACTURED USING A UNIQUE "DRY EXTRUSION" PROCESS.  THE
PRODUCT IS COOKED USING FRICTION AND FORCE UNDER PRESSURE, INSTEAD OF A
CONVENTIONAL STEAM COOKING METHOD.  THIS EXTRUSION TECHNIQUE PRE-COOKS
THE INGREDIENTS, WHICH INCREASES DIGESTABILITY OF PROTEIN AND ENERGY BY A
MINIMUM OF 10%.  IT ALSO ELIMINATES MOLDS & AFLATOXINS FROM THE RAW
INGREDIENTS.  THIS PATENTED PROCESS ALLOWS FOR HIGH HEAT, SHORT
COOK TIME, AND A HIGHER QUALITY FOOD FOR YOUR PET!

* HIGHEST QUALITY INGREDIENTS

THE NUMBER ONE INGREDIENT IN SPIKE'S DELITE IS CHICKEN MEAL. PET-PRO
PRODUCTS USES ONLY TRUE RENDERED 60% PROTEIN CHICKEN.  THIS CHICKEN
IS THE HIGHEST AVAILABLE TO THE PET FOOD INDUSTRY, AND IS ONLY ONE
STEP BELOW HUMAN GRADE
LEVEL.  THEY DO NOT USE ANY OF THE FEET, BEAKS
OR VISCERALS FOUND IN LOWER QUALITY PRODUCTS!

THE NUMBER TWO INGREDIENT (EXCEPT IN THE PRO-DIET) IS EXTRUDED
YELLOW CORN.  CORN HAS HAD SOME BAD PR AS A MAIN INGREDIENT OF ANIMAL FEEDS.
THIS IS DUE PRIMARILY TO SOME OF THE RISKS OF STABILIZATION & STERILIZATION IN
CONVENTIONAL STEAM COOKING.  THESE CONCERNS ARE ELIMINATED BY
SPIKE'S DELITE'S UNIQUE EXTRUSION PROCESS.  THE USE OF CORN IN ANIMAL
DIETS HAS ALSO GENERATED CRITICISM DUE TO THE INTRINSIC DIFFICULTIES OF
DIGESTING CORN.  THE PATENTED EXTRUSION PROCESS USED BY PET-PRO PRODUCTS PARTIALLY PRE-DIGESTS THE CORN.  THIS MAKES THE CORN CONTAINED IN SPIKE'S
DELITE
TO HAVE A HIGHER DIGESTIBILITY THAN THAT FOUND IN OTHER FEEDS.  YOU
CAN FEED THIS EXCELLENT PRODUCT WITH CONFIDENCE.
*PLEASE REFER TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS WEB PAGE FOR A COMPLETE INGREDIENT
LIST OF ALL OF OUR
SPIKE'S DELITE HEDGEHOG FOODS.

* SPECIAL BLEND OF HERBS AND SUPPLIMENTS

THREE OF SPIKE'S DELITE HEDGEHOG FOODS CONTAIN A SPECIAL MIX OF
SUPPLIMENTAL INGREDIENTS.  THESE INCLUDE "CHELATED" TRACE MINERALS,
ENZYMES, AND HERBS.  THIS BLEND PROVIDES FOR BETTER DIGESTIBILITY AND
MAKES FOR BETTER ABSORPTION OF NUTRIENTS.

(FOR A COMPLETE LISTING OF ALL INGREDIENTS, REFER TO THE INFORMATION AT THE
BOTTOM OF THIS WEB PAGE).

* EXCELLENT PALATABILITY

NOT ONLY IS SPIKE'S DELITE NUTRITIONALLY SUPERIOR, MORE EASILY DIGESTED,
AND MADE WITH THE HIGHEST QUALITY INGREDIENTS... BUT IT TASTES GOOD TOO!!
OUR HEDGIES NOT ONLY THRIVE ON IT NUTRITIONALLY, BUT THEY LOVE THE TASTE ALSO.
AND NOT ONLY IS IT APPEALING TO THEIR PALATE, BUT IT HAS A HIGH CRUNCH
FACTOR!  THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR LONG TERM ORAL HYGENE.

HEDGEHOGS by Vickie believes that SPIKE'S DELITE
HEDGEHOG FOODS
are the very best on the market. This is why we
feed it to our hedgehogs with confidence. All of our baby hedgies are
weaned on
SPIKE'S DELITE PREMIUM HEDGEHOG FOOD.
We recommend that our customers continue to provide it as the main
diet to their animals.
